+ - Ubuntu Claims 12 Million Users - Before Lucid->

Submitted by darthcamaro
darthcamaro (735685) writes "It's always a challenge to try and figure out how many users a particular Linux distro has — but Canonical is now providing a new figure for Ubuntu that is 50 percent more than what they were claiming just 18 months ago.

"We have no phone home or registration process, so it's always a guesstimate. But based on the same methodology that we came up with for the 2008 number, our present belief is that it's somewhere north of 12 million users at the moment," Chris Kenyon, vice president for OEM at Canonical, told InternetNews.com

Just in case you were wondering, Fedora still claims more — actually almost double at 24 million."
